Heading to Maui for the first time in March. Would my GPS that I use at home in Pennsylvania work there?
Yep, just make sure you have Hawaii downloaded on it.
Hmmm not sure how to check that. I'll have to see if I can figure it out. Thanks for the reply.
If you have a smartphone the navigations on there work well.
Ok that's a good suggestion ..... Thank you
To check gps, search for your destination and then chose "show on map". If it shows it, you are good to go!
Any GPS in the US will work in Hawaii, nothing else to do. With Maui being a small island you won't need it anyway. Make sure you don't leave it or the mount visible because of break-in's.
Thanks BMW .... it worked and I saved the hotel address so when we get there I can just go to favorites. I'll try my phone navigation as well.....just in case. :)
One thing I am wondering---does the GPS know to avoid the roads that are forbidden under the rental car contract?
Quite easy to get around Maui without GPS. It's just not that big. But if you have one, take it. Listening to the digital voice try to pronounce the Hawaiian names can be very entertaining.
No, GPS won't tell you which roads are prohibited by your rental car contract. Heck, sometimes GPS tells people to take roads that don't exist!
The road around the back of the west side is closed for construction work, until at least the end of April, so that eliminates one 'forbidden' road.
The other road is the 'back side' of the Hana highway.
If you use the desktop app here, look to the right and read the "Top Questions" about driving beyond Hana and Nakalele.Edited: 20 January 2014, 18:58
